Billed as “your personal brain trainer,” Elevate is a beautifully designed learning app. You can play up to three free challenges a day. All of them are fun, easy to use and absolutely gorgeous. They’re designed to help improve vocabulary, reading and listening focus, writing abilities and information-processing speed. The great thing is, they actually work! I can sense that it’s helped me improve my vocabulary and writing skills. I’ve already found myself applying lessons from the game when writing emails at work.

This app is awe-inspiring. Sure, it seems like just a game but that’s only part of it. It’s a joy to look at and use. This is a great example of where app design is going—three-dimensional hyper-realism. I wouldn’t consider it an interface, but more of an environment with materiality and depth. The challenge is to move a silent character—a princess—through a series of mazes. Each level gets harder by testing your problem solving skills and your ability to stay on task, despite how easy it is to get distracted by all the beautiful surroundings.

Designed by local San Francisco bike enthusiasts, this bike light seeks to ease riders’ daily commute. I’ve lost more than one bike light because I’ve forgotten to remove it on either end of my commute. With Sparse, you install it once and never have to remove it again. The design is sleek, the materials are solid and it looks great integrated into the bike. Just set it and forget it.
